News : Raids Continue in Shillong After Police Bust Call Centre Racket

#contactcenterworld

Shillong, India Aug 29, 2017 -- Shillong Police is continuing with its raids at different places of operations of the fake Internal Revenue Service (IRS) call centre racket which was busted in the city.

The group of people who were arrested on Monday were duping US citizens claiming to be calling from Internal Revenue Service, United States.

East Khasi Hills SP Davis Marak on Tuesday said that the arrested people had taken permission to setup call centres here in Shillong but they were misusing it by duping people.



So far, six people have been arrested in this connection and they will be produced in the court on Tuesday.

"Usually, they used to call US citizens and telling them they have not paid their taxes and they were asked to deposit some amount or to buy some gift coupons," he said.

According to Marak, once the money was deposited by victims, half of the money used to come to India through Hawala channel and a share was given to these people operating here in Shillong.

The lion share used to go to the main heads of the racket in Ahmedabad.

He stated that the group of racket who were running fake centre here in Shillong were planning to close down the centre and the main heads of the racket had come to Shillong on Monday when police arrested them.

The arrested people have told the police that on an average, they used to earn around 80,000 US dollars per month.

Shillong Police is also trying to find out whether they have duped even Indian citizens.

Police during the raid on Monday also recovered incriminating documents, hard disks and some cash.
